Breath Analysis for Biomedicine and National Security: Sensor Design Issues and Strategies for Biomarker Discovery

As human breath analysis further develops as a multi-disciplinary field, it is clear that sensor development, instrumentation systems and algorithms play critical roles within this research area.

Although much emphasis in the last decade has focused on breath biomarker compound identification and physiological relevance, we increasingly turn our attention towards portable, fieldable sensor platforms for non-invasive breath monitoring.

The mission of this workshop is to assemble a group of leading experts in this field to discuss their own research, debate trends and future directions of the field, and contemplate areas of research that deserve special attention in the field moving forward.

Organizers: Prof. Cristina Davis, Dr. Michael Epton, Prof. Nicholas Kenyon, Dr. Matthias Frank, Dr. Amy Gryshuk

Registration deadline: 17 Augost 2012
